Chris Paul reached an agreement with the Rockets on July 1 to return on a four-year, $160 million max contract, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. In the Western Conference Finals, the Rockets took a 3-2 series lead but Paul was injured late in Game 5 and the Golden State Warriors would go on to win the next two games and eventually, the National Basketball Association title. By signing Chris Paul back, it looks as though the Rockets are moving in the right direction to be a contender yet again next season. He averaged 12.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 22.7 minutes per game across 41 games (two starts) with the Rockets.
Paul became a player of "Houston" in the summer of previous year - the former leader of the clippers franchise from Texas gave a pack of seven players, 661 thousand dollars, and the peak of the first round of 2018. The Rockets had a chance to win it in Game 7, but they missed 27 straight three-pointers, allowing the Warriors to escape with the win.
On the third day of free agency, Rockets starting center Clint Capela is not finding the kinds of offers he was hoping for.
